The age of coronavirus has seen extraordinary change to the ways that business is conducted, including and especially in the advent and uptake of legal technologies and remote working. This “new normal” creates more scope and opportunities for legal professionals to carve out a vocational path that makes the most sense for them – both inside and outside of law.
In this session, you will hear from three “legalpreneurs” about building a business, or brand, to suit the post-pandemic marketplace and be in keeping with what clients want and expect moving forward. Moreover, you will learn about building your own personal profile to expand your professional and practical skills, and create a more holistic perspective on one’s life in law and how to succeed.
